“A good, prudent, pious and discerning Government is able to save the nation. But alone also it cannot, if the people do not cooperate, and help also, just as a captain of a ship is not able to save an endangered ship, if the sailors do not also help. But what will save the nation, the Government and the people, is God, who does and alters everything, who provides for all and for the benefit of each provides in a mankind loving way. God saves Greece, but when? When we all return to Him. Because we must confess the truth, that our sins have taken us far from God. 'While those who go far away from God are lost' says the Holy Spirit through the great prophet David.”
